The fly agaric (Amanita muscaria) is a striking mushroom , which is common in the low countries. Eating it can lead to symptoms of poisoning, but the severity of this is usually not so bad.
The white dots are remnants of the overall shell in which the mushroom was 'trapped' before it emerged from the ground. These wash off the hat fairly quickly in rainy weather.

Behind The Lens

Location
In a forest near to the city of Nijkerk, in the Netherlands.
Time
Late afternoon.
Lighting
It was light cloudy and the trees tempered the sunlight quite a lot.
Equipment
My Canon EOS RP, with a Tamron 18-400mm. lens.
Inspiration
The beauty of this red mushroom with its perfectly scattered white dots caught my attention right away.
Editing
Only some cropping.
In my camera bag
My camera, lens and spare battery.
Feedback
When walking in the forest, look around, and pay attention also to small things. Don't be afraid to leave the path.
